MALDON and Tiptree manager Wayne Brown believes the club are an attractive proposition to potential signings this summer.

The Jammers are embarking on another rebuilding process, after losing a host of their talented players that performed so well in Isthmian League division north, last season.

The likes of Jake Cass, Charlee Hughes and Danny Parish have all moved on to pastures new, having helped Maldon to the brink of promotion prior to the campaign being curtailed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Jammers are now looking for players to replace them and boss Brown feels their reputation for helping talent prosper will stand them in good stead.

Brown said: “Players will want to come and play for Maldon to shine and put themselves in the shop window and hopefully kick on for the club.

“It’d have been nice if we could have stayed together and kicked on together from last season but it wasn’t to be.

“No-one could have envisaged the pandemic coming along and the decision to null and void the season.

“It’s frustrating but you’d want to come along and play for Maldon, because they’ll give you an opportunity.”

Maldon played their first pre-season friendly of the summer last weekend when they were beaten 2-0 at Barking.

The Jammers travel to play East Thurrock United in another friendly, this Saturday as they prepare for the new league season kicking off on September 19.

“We just have to adapt and think on our feet and try and roll with the punches,” added Brown.

“With the uncertainty that surrounds the Covid situation, the date of the 19th still might not happen.

“I’m pleased with the way we’ve gone about it because we haven’t brought lads in early until there is a decision being made (on the season starting).

“It could change but you have to draw the line somewhere.

“There could be a second wave and I’m sure it’s going to be frustrating but there’s a bigger picture to this and football isn’t that important when Covid is going on.”

Meanwhile, Maldon have announced that they have been awarded Football Foundation Club Preparation Funding from the Premier League, FA and the Government’s Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

It will allow the club to make their building a safer environment for when football returns.
